Winemaker's Notes:

The winery strives to achieve a Malbec with a deep purple color, with a high intensity of black fruits, raspberries, and violets. Zolo Malbec is elaborated with grapes from Russell, Lulunta, Agrelo, Tupungato and Consulta. The diversity of vineyards and different climatic conditions brings about a greater complexity of aromas in this noble grape transforming it into a very interesting wine.

About Zolo:

Fincas Patagonicas, parent winery to Zolo and Tapiz vineyards, is one of the most technologically advanced wineries in Argentina and marries Argentina's best vineyards with winemaking expertise. Fincas Patagonicas vineyards are located in the Valle de Uco and Agrelo regions, province of Mendoza. Mt. Plata (6100 meters) and Tupungato volcano (6800 meters), overlook the state-of-the-art Fincas Patagónicas Winery providing a magnificent scenery.

The signature wine of Fincas Patagónicas is Malbec. One of the five Bordeaux blending grapes, Malbec has flourished in Argentina since the middle 1800s, producing intense wines of great value. Fincas Patagónicas’s Tapiz Malbec was recognized as the "Best overall Malbec" by
Wine & Spirits
in its annual buying guide for 2000 and the Malbec 2002 was listed as Best Value by Wine Spectator in 2004 .
